Haunting 3D Projection of Giant Faces on Trees

Tonight is the last night to see a haunting artwork at Hyde Park South in Sydney, Australia. For the last few weeks, contemporary artist Craig Walsh has been showing Emergence, an amazing projection where the park’s trees come alive as faces emerge from the leaves and branches. Paying homage to the park’s history as a meeting place for civic unrest, protest and direction action, three faces tell interesting stories about civic involvement.

Art & About is Sydney's annual celebration of public art with a month of art installations and exhibitions in public spaces. Though Emergence ends tonight, there’s still over two weeks left to enjoy all of the other artwork scattered around the city.

When Art & About asked their Facebook followers if anyone had seen the projection, here’s what a few people said: “Going to see it this week, looks earie though like the ghosts of people past” and “Walk through every night, the bonus of living a block away, absolutely fantastic.”
